Yep. Since you don't have control of the clutch you are left with only throttle control and things like going over a bump which might cause your foot to jerk ever so slightly will sometimes cause the problem. Mine has a tendency to want to do it at a certain intersection on a slight uphill grade making a left turn around once every 2 months or so.
I'm not a race car driver, but I play one on my TV.
